“Mixed Review”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

Don't let the cutsie outside fool you, this is a typical low-budget hotel on the inside. Scuff marks and mystery stains on every wall, holes in the curtains that are hanging by a tread, cigarette burn holes on the blankets and bedspreads, etc. Breakfast was ok with all of the options including the sausage biscuits being individually wrapped items that probably came from Sam's Club. Pool is clean and nice, albeit small with a waterfall feature that's really more of a sprinkler shooting out water. The person at the front desk was the best part of the stay as he was very nice and helpful. Overall, the inside of the room is poor and everything else fair to good for the price.

I have been traveling to Helen Ga. for 30 years but have never stayed overnight. Fathers day weekend we decided to round off a 100 mile motorcycle ride with a stay over. I must admit I was concerned as the reviews on the area hotels were very mixed so I chose Super 8 based on the number of positive reviews and I must admit I was not the least bit disappointed. The hotel has some age but a recent renovation along with a very friendly knowledgeable staff made for a very enjoyable stay. The have an enclosed heated pool with refrigerator, microwaves, & in room coffeemakers. Room was very comfortable & clean.The hotel offers round the clock complimentry fresh coffee, cookies & pastries in the lobby. They also have reasonably priced (75 cents)snacks & soft drinks available at the front desk. The breakfast has a good variety of muffins sausage biscuits, fresh fruit,cereal.& juice & excellent coffee. Keeping in mind you are staying in a tourist driven area the room rates will be higher than you might expect for a Super 8 but the location( within walking distance of all the attractions) makes it all the more worthwhile. An excellent travel experience!!!

Room Tip: Weekends are very busy & ground floor rooms go first so book early. Traffic through the area mid...

My Husband and I have been to Helen Ga a few times. We love it there and we always stay at the Super 8. Is it the best hotel? Truthfully I do not know. But I will tell you this .......It is not bad. The price is great and well worth it. You can walk to anywhere in Helen in minutes and you have a fridge and microwave in your room. We have paid more for rooms and have gotten less. No, it's not the Four Seasons (where we have stayed). But the toilet at least works (which we had problems with at the Four Seasons).
Lol, and the people who run the hotel have always been pleasant.

This hotel was great. The price was perfect, the front staff was incredibly friendly, and it was a two minute walk from Helen's shops. I'll be staying there again soon.

I was a little wary after reading some of the other reviews, but I was pleasantly surprised with this place. The front desk staff were all really nice and helpful. The room was your typical motel room. It was nothing fancy, but was clean and comfortable. The continental breakfast consisted of cereal, pastries, and fruit.
The greatest thing about this place was the location. It was on the main road through town and was an easy walk to the shops, bars, restaurants, and mini golf.
